We've got a double championship card tonight and this show is getting no major interest. This ESPN deal made them cold. And they were coming off of their biggest selling PPV ever (Khabib vs McGregor) when they went into it. It just doesn't feel special in the ESPN coverage. They treat it like just another side thing they cover, no different from tennis or hockey. Basketball, NFL and baseball are the priorities and the women's world cup is the top special event.

Meltzer predicted 300,000 buys when a show like this would get at least 800,000 a year ago.

"I want to thank my daughter Ava and my son Macho Man."

I hope he really named his son Macho Man Masvidal.
